Women’s Golf Collects Empire 8 Academic Awards

PROVIDENCE, RI. – Success this year was not limited to the course for the Johnson & Wales University women's golf team. The Wildcats were recognized for their academic achievements by the Empire 8 Conference.

Johnson & Wales was named an All-Empire 8 Conference academic team award for having a 3.24 team grade point average in the spring. Freshman Alexis Anastos, an applied psychology major from Lock Haven, Pa., earned a spot on the President's List for having over a 3.75 GPA in the spring.

JWU is an affiliate member of the Empire 8 and finished fourth at the conference championship in the fall. The Wildcats lowered their team averaged by nearly 10 percent this season and should be poised for another good year with their top four players back for the fall of 2018.
